I kept this November 2011 article on the NAR conference that took place in Anaheim last year. I wanted to see how far off the NAR lapdog would be when he gave his predictions for this year. Here is the article

    Listening to the NAR's recommendations on RE is like asking Jeffrey Dahmer for tips on table manners.

    I suspect Darrell doesn't understand what per capita means.

    Realtors should get a job. A real job that is.

    How can that be when new construction is a fraction of the cost of resale housing?

    You can't even keep your lies straight. Typical used house pimp.... and can't even be truthful about that.

    Contact Deepak Chopra. I'm sure he can give you some bullshit spiritual guidance to make up for all those years you gorged yourself at the trough of the housing bubble. You new construction pimps just fleeced all those poor misguided individuals who were led down the path of debt by nice new marble counter tops installed by pimping contractors like yourself.

    Why should I believe you? You're a builder - a profession ranked right up there with realtors for untrustworthiness. All of you involved in the real estate business are neck deep in it, all of you, and that's why you keep flapping around this forum spouting your nonsense - you're covering for the shame and guilt you feel for the part you played in bilking so many people during the housing bubble. Shame on you, you new construction pimp.

    Dead on accurate with the housing market. Not so much with mortgage rates although he couldn't have imagined QE3.

    Mortgage rates will remain low as long as the rate of purchasing remains low and the economy remains sluggish.

    If / when the economy improves, rates will rise. There's no real reason to believe that they'll move in different directions over the long term.

    And "rate of purchasing" will remain low as long as resale prices remain grossly inflated and distorted.

    Remember.... Housing demand is at 16 year lows for a reason..... that reason is grossly inflated prices.

    What's the median household income in Phoenix? What's the median house price?

    Household income has nothing to do with it. Wage earner income is under $24k.

    Is that a per capita figure by any chance?

    Wage earner income is under $24K everywhere.

    Low wage earner income.

    Mininum wage+ $2/hour * 50 weeks/year * 40 hours/week=
    ($7.80 + $2) * 50 * 40 = $19,600.

    These low wage earners in Phoenix don't buy homes, they rent for double the PITI from some investor.

    Darrell is not stupid, but I think he may have had a tramautic experience with a realtor at sometime in his life.

    Here's a hint..... it means housing prices falling to much lower levels. ;)

    I know what wage earner income means, but as you quoted the per capita figure...

    And prices are rolling back.... enjoy.

    But apparently not in Phoenix, though of course that doesn't matter to you seeing as you don't live there.

    Could you please elaborate what exactly you mean by "wage earner income"?

    If you're talking about the average income of a working person in a household, you're clearly wrong.

    If you're talking about the (antiquated) average income of hourly workers, you're also wrong. It's within 10% of the average according to the BLS. Hourly workers (outside of skilled trades) are also overwhelmingly not home buyers.

    Instead of telling people that they're wrong, why don't you tell us WTF you mean?
